Chart Notes:

  • The new weather report says that Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande‘s global hit “Rain On Me” will be sticking around at the top of my personal chart for some time, as it continues to pour for a second week. Taylor Swift‘s “Cruel Summer” kindly takes the Biggest Mover title, moving up from 37-30 in its second week in the countdown. Songs from Kacey Musgraves and Ava Max are new to my list on this update: the former’s “Oh, What A World” enters at #38, just ahead of its impact at the Triple A format, while the latter’s “Kings & Queens” jumps in at #39, which is looking for some royal Top 40 adds in early July.

Chart Notes:

  • Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande‘s big hit “Rain On Me” storms the top spot with a 3-1 move in its fifth week on my personal chart, raining on Dua Lipa‘s pop parade after an eight-week stretch at the summit with “Break My Heart”. The pair of pop bops are certainly worthy of both the Song Of The Summer title and a high placing on my year-end survey in December. Four tracks debut on the latest update, with “My Own Soul’s Warning” by The Killers leading the pack at #32. It’s the follow-up to “Caution”, which just spent the past six weeks at #2. From there, “Cruel Summer” from Taylor Swift comes in at #37, the fifth entry to rank from her Lover album, while Cam‘s “Redwood Tree” and Tessa Violet‘s “Bored” land at #39 and #40, respectively. Violet is the only newcomer in the mix, while Cam earns her second top 40 song.

Chart Notes:

  • Sam Fischer‘s “This City” continues its domination over the city that is my personal chart, earning a fifth week at the top. However, big hits by Dua Lipa, Lady Gaga and The Killers could end his reign as early as next week, as they continue to gain. All three debuts this week are by male newcomers: Jaymes Young is in at #36 with “Happiest Year”, whose first charting song has been fueled by the video app TikTok. A recent top 40 entry in Austria and Germany by Tom Gregory, “Fingertips”, starts at #38. Juno Award winner Donovan Woods also lands on the list at #40 with “Grew Apart”, which impacts at the Triple A radio format later this month. How will they do on my chart? Stay tuned.

Demi Lovato and Lady Gaga are tied for the Biggest Mover title at nine spots each, with “I Love Me” (35-26) and “Stupid Love” (20-11) poised for higher peaks. Debut action in the top 40 is busy this week, with “Caution” from The Killers leading the way at #32. The band’s forthcoming album, Imploding The Mirage, is due May 29. The third top 40 hit on my chart for Tones And I, “Bad Child”, debuts at #34. It replaces “Dance Monkey”, her former chart-topper, which dropped to #34 last week and is out of the top 40 now. A little further down, OneRepublic returns with “Didn’t I”, new at #38, as the viral release “Supalonely” lands at #39 for two newcomers: Benee and Gus Dapperton. The former is the current single from the band’s forthcoming album Human, due May 8. The latter is from the New Zealand singer’s EP Stella & Steve, which was released last fall.

Chart Notes:

  • JP Saxe and Julia Michaels remain at #1 for the second week on my personal chart with “If The World Was Ending”, as they continue to rise through the 30’s on the Hot AC radio list. Last week’s top debut on my chart from Niall Horan, “No Judgement”, earns the Biggest Mover title on the new update with a jump from 38-30. Following their recent #1 song “Orphans”, Coldplay debuts at #36 with “Champion Of The World” ahead of the single’s impact at Alternative and Triple A radio towards the end of the month. Matt Simons is also new to the top 40 at #37 with “Cold”, which earns him his first chart entry since the spring of 2018. It heads for adds at Triple A radio in the same week as Coldplay’s cut.
